5:07 am
that's warm enough for heat stroke here in the south bay. this is just the beginning. temperatures climb out of the mid to upper 80s and into the triple digits. we could see 105 in gilroy as we get into wednesday. that looks to be the warmest day, but even as we start to cool off a touch, getting into the end of the week, way above average. so, get ready for a pro-longed heat event bay area. i want to show you right now when it comes to the spare the air alert, we're mostly in the moderate air quality range. you're okay this morning in san francisco along the peninsula and in the north bay. here's a look at this week at a glance. warming continues for today. triple-digit heat for the middle of the week and then those temperatures will start to moderate a touch as we head into this weekend and next week. like i said, it will stay hot. we'll show you how long this warm up will last coming up in my next report. let's check your drive and say happy monday to mike inouye. >> yes, definitely always happy monday. you can hear the resounding
5:08 am
applause here. and slow drive across the span from oakland to san francisco and vice versa. debris reported as you look at your map and a single glass jar from the chp calling at treasure island. not much of a report, but, still, i saw a little slowing and might have been a big jar, we'll see how things go on the follow-up reports. a smooth drive out of the maze and following up here. northbound 680 at the main street on-ramp. sounds like all the activity just about cleared and may still have a little bit of flashing lights, but no slowing shows up on our sensors. that's better news we were concerned about activity through the area. in the south bay where the speed sensors okay, we'll take our live camera and just got word from chp that is cut off from what i wanted to show you. the bottom corner is where i'm looking. northbound 101 approaching 680. reports of a car fire still not a great shot. we'll realign that and it's cutting off our picture.
5:09 am

5:10 am
development because the team needs to use that land for parking for its new stadium. the team could build 789 parking spots there. the city has proposed 4,000 other spots, but the team has said no to them for various reasons. some have drainage issues, for example. using the youth soccer field next door for parking on game days. that's not going to happen, says the city. and the team has indicated that sharing parking spaces with montana's development wouldn't work either. so, that could lead to the possibility that the team could say you have to shut down joe montana's development because we'll need that space for all those cars. again, a stadium that will be holding 68,500 people. you can do the math, they need a lot of spots for the parking. the issue of parking has got to be resolved soon because levi stadium scheduled to open this august. >> thanks so much, bob. 5:10. google glass is on sale. it was at a golf tournament.

5:34 am
started. a painful reminder this morning for parents about water safety after a concord baby nearly drowned in a backyard swimming pool. christie smith joins us live in concord with an update on the baby's condition. good morning. >> good morning to you, scott. you know, the latest information that we have is that the baby was revived and is listed in stable condition after a report of a near drowning at a backyard swimming pool yesterday mother's day here in concord, certainly a wake-up call. as you said, a reminder about water safety as we see some really hot temperatures this weekend. little kids try to cool off. yesterday concord police received an emergency call to a home on ducker court of an infant who had drowned in the pool there. this was after 6:00 p.m. police arrived first and found the little baby nonresponsive and being cared for by family members. police immediately took over the life-saving efforts until paramedics could arrive moments later and the baby was
5:35 am
transferred and then another hospital and revived. the police still have not discussed the circumstances of the accidental drowning as they're calling it, but, again, this type of story certainly reminds us all to be careful, especially with little children around water as we're seeing temperatures in the 90s, maybe even 100s this week. reporting live in concord, christie smith, "today in the bay." >> thank you. at 5:35. continuing coverage on the mass kidnapping of nigerian school girls. just hours ago the leader of an islamic extremist group released a video. in it he says he will free more than 200 girls in exchange for the release of the militant prisoners. dozens of girls were shown wearing full vail veils and pr in the video. if genuine, the video would be the first sign that any of the kidnapped girls are still alived. in the meantime, hostage negotiators will arrive in the northern part of the country
5:36 am
today. even though there is no word where the girls might be. it has attracted international outrage. just last week nigeria was forced to accept international help in that search after ignoring officers for weeks. here in the bay area, demonstrators will hold a vigil for the girls tonight. set for 6:30 in palo alot on university avenue. the focus will be to call for justice and show support for women and girls across the country who are victims of violent crimes. 5:36 this monday morning. let's check win meteorologist christina loren. >> good morning, everybody. want to get you up and moving this morning. no fog to show you and really no low clouds at all. might find ragged patches and overall nice and clear from san jose all the way in to san francisco. as a result, sunshine coming in right off the bat. that means we're going to see some really warm temperatures as we head throughout this afternoon. but really pretty sunrise. going to occur right on time
5:37 am
here in san francisco at about 6:03 this morning. so, we're still getting to the coolest point of the day. any outdoor activities to take care of, the coolest morning of the week. 53 degrees for the peninsula and 53 degrees in san francisco and temperatures are going to be hot today. breezy through the hills and at the coast. 80s, upper 80s widespread across your inland valleys at the coast today you will see the 70s and we'll trade those 70s in for 80s at the ocean as we head throughout your tuesday and wednesday. sun will set at 8:10 and we do have a spare the air day. the only benefit from a spare the air day is an absolutely spectacular sunset. temperatures today are going to be warm and then we're going to crank that heat up even more so as we get into tuesday and wednesday looks hot. 90 degrees for the north bay and 80 degrees in the east bay. these pictures just look hot to me, mike. hazy sunshine in the tri-valley and likely be sparing the air for the next couple days.

5:43 am
they are trying to freshen things up on the inside a bit and, of course, that dramatic view from the top that people here will get a chance to see for the first time in over 2 1/2 years. >> that will be exciting. have you been in it yet or planning on going in? >> no, i didn't get a chance to go in. they did let a few people in to do some advance tours, some people from the media over the weekend and i have not and i am hearing it is the best view of washington, d.c., ever. it's an icon. really the thing, a lot of people come here to see. i'm looking forward to getting in. if not today, maybe at some point with my kids over the summer. >> can't wait to hear about it. thanks so much, tracie. the downfall of 49er joe montana's newest product could be the team itself. the organization reportedly says it will kill montana's project unless the team has new stadium spaces. bob redell live outside across the street from where montana
5:44 am
wants to build and, bob, this is all about parking. >> it is. at issue is the eight-acre parcel land and you can see it right there behind me, located directly across the street from the brand-new levi stadium and the star quarterback for the 49ers wants to use that land to build a $400 million entertainment center. montana would like to develop it with office space, hotels, shops and restaurants. >> place to be right now. i can't wait to get going. so many people are going to love the area and block off the street right in front of our property. walk across into the stadium. pretty neat. >> but his former employer could crush that dream.
